An educational workshop on Sustainable Development Goals was held in Priboj on July 9 in the premises of the Youth Office, during which Priboj youth had the opportunity to learn about Agenda 2030 and its 17 SDGs, especially those of the environmental protection dimension. The participants, in addition to great interest, showed a surprisingly high level of knowledge and creative thinking about the topics of the workshop.
In addition to talking about SDGs, youth had the opportunity to hear more about decision-making processes in the field of environmental protection at the local level, and about the ways in which they can influence these processes. This part of the workshop induced their special interest, and one of the key points of discussion was how to ensure that the local self-government implements the decisions made and the obligations undertaken.
The organization of the workshop was funded by the governments of Switzerland and Germany within the platform “Sustainable Development Goals for All” implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, as part of the Public Finance Reform – Agenda 2030 project. Partners on the project are Belgrade Fund for Political Excellence, Belgrade Open School, Center for Advanced Economic Studies, Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation, Foundation Center for Democracy and Timok Youth Center.
